  1. This thread will get more answers on the Boston board. But, here's a link to a restaurant blog on the North Shore. Penney is a good source for the Salem area.

    Enjoy your trip and welcome to Boston ~

    1. Try a place called Dubes on Jefferson ave. If you need to stay downtown it will not be cheap. Finz and Capt's are good but expensive..... For lobster try a place called the anchor pub and grille just over the border in Beverly, MA.

        Almost forgot a place called the Lobster Shanty....

          +1 on Lobster Shanty
          Also..if you want to go to nearby Marblehead, the Barnacle has the best lobster bisque I've ever tried.

            The website says The Lobster Shanty is closed until April 1st.

            And I'll second North Shore Dish. Jill and Kristen are a great team and offer good ideas for that area.

              Thanks for letting us know that one is closed.

              Lobster bisque sounds fantastic, hope we get that far
